I turn ideas into products. By building high performing teams, providing them with clear product and technical visions, and ensuring the execution is align with business priorities, I have successfully delivered over 15 products to market. These ranges from real-time system for mobile carriers that serves millions of customers, to a mobile app that help protect consumer privacy, to a cloud based live video platform. With over 17 years of experience in software and mobile industry, I have directly led teams of up to 35 people in size, and managed projects with both onshore and offshore teams with a combined size over 90 people.
Possessing both technical depth and business acumen, I often go from discussing architecture and implementation details with developers to business strategies and market positioning with executive teams. Being able to span both business and tech is what makes startups exciting for me.
